Do you believe in magic?

I am a great lover of magic. You will never hear me beg a magician to tell me how they did their trick; I want to believe they actually did it. I would rather consider the possibility that their years of practice had brought them to an enlightened power over the physical world, rather than a power over every muscle in their body so they can shift, sort and switch things without me seeing.

That’s why I wrote ‘The Amazing Salvador’.

I know a lot of people won’t like this story; a lot of people who beg the magician to tell them ‘how they did it’ and who Google the explanation behind David Copperfield’s amazing walk through the Great Wall of China or Criss Angel’s superb disappearing Lamborghini stunt (so good I’m going to insert it rather than reference it).

So thank you Title Goes Here for seeing the magic in my story, and not telling me magic is ‘so yesterday that it is in the same category as vampire stories’ – I hope you all enjoy it.

  1. Congrats on placing your story, I look forward to reading it.

    You might want to check out the tv series, Penn and Tellar : Fool Us. They are world famous magician / illusionists, who are also looking to recapture the magic, and put out the challenge to other magicians to perform magic that they have no idea how it’s done. They make a great effort to no reveal the magic, even when they know how it’s done.

  2. Hi Leif, I discovered Penn & Teller: Fool Us about a month ago and I love the show! But now it’s finished I’m going to have to add them to my YouTube trawl list. Honestly, I could watch magic shows all day. Love it, love it, love it!
